First let me say that I am overwhelmed, but immensely appreciative, of the extensive research you took the time to do on my behalf. While I have not yet taken time to look at the civil records you examined for additional support, I will do that soon. I confess that because I do not speak or read Norwegian, I have avoided the online civil records.
I will note that in my research the past several days I did come across several additional records with the word "skoleholder" used after the patronymic name. Thank you for identifying that word for me.
I am pleased that you identified Hans with family on the Fugelberg farm. That would have been my tentative choice based on the research that I am able to do. One additional piece of supporting evidence for me was the name of one of the engagement sponsors, Lars Fugleberg.http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=11552&...
Your help will let me work further back in family ancestry for my cousin. We have two grandmothers who were sisters, and I am researching the ancestry of my cousin's grandfather. When I document the work for her I will give you credit for supporting documentation.
Again, thank you for your thoughtful help.
By the way, would you perhaps be Geir Moen, whose name I've seen on the DIS-Hordaland web site?
